When I first left rehab, my mantra was ‘Just for today’. The mantra of Narcotics Anonymous. It sure took courage and all my effort to stay clean just for that day. Beyond those first days, weeks and months I found hope. Hope for a better future for me and for my loved ones that had been so badly affected by my addiction. Planting that seed has led me on a journey that I am sharing with other recovering addicts and giving them hope and a practical way of moving away from addiction.

When I coach a client, I am very aware of blame and excuses. It comes across in the way clients speak and behave. Let’s face it, it is much easier to use these to justify where we are at emotionally rather than take responsibility. This is very true of recovering addicts, but also true of anyone in a negative emotional state.

PROACTIVE VS REACTIVE Are you prepared for the ‘new normal’? Where do you want to be in your future? What does that look like? Has everything as you’ve known it changed? Are your previous certainties uncertain? Has the comfort zone dissipated with the new normal? When you celebrated New Year 2020 how did you see..

Your brain is constantly searching to achieve your highest purpose in life but often we are not using all the tools we have to achieve that sense of happiness, the actualisation of our higher purpose. When our subconscious mind has an idea of what it wants for us and we are not living up to that vision, this is where we feel unhappiness and unfulfillment.

It is said that people don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan. A simple exercise can reduce your stress, help you to be more productive and give quality family time a whole new perspective. This method of planning will also decrease your evening stress and the effects that stress has on one’s sleep.

I have over my lifetime experienced the affects to people that suffer severe depression, anxiety and substance abuse / addiction. Not only the affects of the person suffering but on the people that love them. These conditions are not choices, though some will say that dependence on substance or alcohol is a choice. The person that is not an addict will never understand the despair of addiction. The person that has never suffered severe depression will never get it.
